don't know if this is the right place for a feature request.
If i drag drawing objects with (many) different layer's into the gallery or between two draw document's the loose their layer information.
Is there a way to store this within the objects?

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Some enhanced layer handling would be great. Additionally I would like to elements retaining layer during copy paste and similar Operations. for example, when you have 3 circles in layers 4,5,6, select all 3, <control+c> for copy, change to layer 7, <control+v> for paste, all 3 new circles will be in layer 7. That's annoying for particular use. I have technical sketches with such complex multi layer elements. Reason is that I want to be able to make visible or invisible parts of the objects for different use. But after a copy / paste (because I need 2 more or less identical objects in the sketch) I have to change layers for the parts of the new object manually.
But I'm afraid that a completely new layer concept will be required for these needs.
On Hackfest Hamburg, April 2018, we have decided to start a project for improving handling of layers and internal structure. In case you start to work on this issue get in contact with Regina (email@example.com) or Armin (Armin.Le.Grand@me.com). It might be that you touch that project with your work.
